I think Peter Grange's site (see one of his posts for his website) has a
topic about merged help projects. Check it out...
I note that you are really talking about combining projects not merging as was suggested earlier.
Merging will certainly provide the illusion that you are dealing with a single help system, but will in fact keep the help systems as separate entities.
Unfortunately RoboHelp offers no feature that says take project A and project B and combine them to create project C. This doesn't mean it cannot be achieved. It simply means you have some work ahead of you in order to make it happen.
Basically what you do is to either create a totally new third project, then import the files from the other two in order to create the larger combined project. Or, you would choose one of the two and import the content from the other into the first in order to create the larger project.

My apologies for threadomancing, but I figure it might be better to use an existing thread than starting another one!
Rick, when you say "import", what exactly does that refer to?
I ask because I've been wanting to merge several of our smaller projects into our main one - they link to it anyways and they're so small that they really don't warrant being separate projects.
AFAIK, the import options in RH7 are by file type (e.g. import HTML files, import Word files). So I could import all the topic files easily, but no idea how to import any of the relevant support and related files from the other projects, nor how to import in a way that would retain the existing TOC structure of the smaller projects.
Can I just "manually" copy and paste them over through Windows Explorer? Would that cause RH to freak-out since the changes weren't done through RH itself?
